Cluj 2-0 Celtic: Dismal Hoops suffer first Europa League defeat

13 Décembre, 2019, 19:52 | Auteur: Adelaide Bullion
  • How could Celtic line up against CFR Cluj

Sinclair made his first start of the campaign last night for what was a dead rubber as Celtic had already qualified for the Europa League knockout stages as group leaders.

Fraser Forster, Scott Brown, Callum McGregor, Odsonne Edouard, Tom Rogic and Ryan Christie, as well as suspended skipper Scott Brown and 19-year-old right-back Jeremie Frimpong, not registered for European football, were all missing.

Subs: Bayo (5), Ajer (6), Dembele (n.v.t.).

Hosts Cluj were the team that eliminated the Glasgow side from the Champions League third qualifying round in the summer - and the Romanian side are now bidding to secure their own spot in the last 32 of the Europa League. Ntcham will captain the team for the first time.

The winger, 30, played the full 90 minutes for what was effectively a Hoops "B" team, barring centre-back Christopher Jullien and fit-again Boli Bolingoli-Mbombo.

Abdel Billel Omrani and Lacina Traore passed up chances but defender Andrei Burca made no such mistake to head the hosts in front in the 48th minute. We came here to win and we're going to do everything to do that.

Eichel stays hot, lifts Sabres past Blues
With their win tonight over the Blues, the Sabres have won back-to-back games for the first time since October 19th and 22nd. Sabres F Casey Mittelstadt returned to the lineup after he was a healthy scratch for Sunday's overtime win in Edmonton.

Just before the break a 25-yard drive from Celtic playmaker Mikey Johnston was deflected wide for a corner but, like most of the action in the first half, that came to nothing.

Gordon still seemed to be thinking about that incident when a sloppy faint from behind presented the ball directly to Deac, but the stand-in Celtic goalkeeper made a great save with one hand around the post to ensure that Cluj did not celebrate a quickfire second.

Celtic have stepped up plans to cash in on Scott Sinclair in January by placing him in the "shop window", Football Insider has learned.

Celtic has shown resilience during the group campaign, returning from a losing position away to Rennes, and home and away to Lazio, but Cluj withdrew with another 20 minutes to go. They last remained blank in the European competition in both last 32 Europa League games against Valencia last season.

The draw for the last 32 of the Europa League takes place on Monday, December 16 in Nyon, with a procedure starting at noon, United Kingdom time. "It has been a very busy time with contracts in the club, fixing the players".
